When you sign up to an online casino today (or other similar gambling portal), you can find out which deposit methods they accept by visiting the ‘cashier’ section or the ‘banking’ section. This should also bring up a list of withdrawal methods that you can use.

Most of today’s online casinos accept various different credit and debit cards, as well as e-wallets and prepaid cards. Other popular deposit methods include direct bank transfers, plus you can also add funds into your account using checks/cheques. You should choose the method which you believe is the most convenient method for you.

Most players today tend to use e-wallets, such as Skrill (formerly moneybookers), PayPal, NETELLER, Click2Pay, myCitadel, UseMyWallet and ClickandBuy, but there are numerous other e-wallets to choose from and new ones keep popping up all the time. Also, depending on which country you are based in will also determine which deposits methods are available to you.

Before you visit the cashier or banking section, you can generally find a list of accepted payment methods somewhere on the homepage of the casino. If you scroll down towards the bottom of the page, you should be able to see the logos of certain accepted deposit methods.

Another secure and reliable way for you to add funds into your gambling account is to use your credit card or your debit card. It would be very rare to find an online casino for example which doesn’t accept Visa, MasterCard or Maestro. Other bank cards that are also generally accepted at today’s online casinos include Laser, Solo, Switch, Visa Electron, Visa Debit, Diners Club, Delta and American Express.

Many players have also started using prepaid cards, such as Ticket Premium, paysafecard, PayPoint, Ukash, NeoSurf, Entropay, EziPay or EcoCard, but although these prepaid cards are a great way to fund your account, prepaid cards CANNOT be used to make withdrawals.

Some of the other most popular and reliable deposit methods include Western Union, FedEx, MoneyGram, DHL, eCheck and Person2Person (player to player) money transfers. Adding funds into your online casino account has never been easier and the great thing is that most transactions are processed almost instantly, so there’s usually no waiting around.

Unless you are sending the casino a check/cheque, which can take a while to arrive and then be processed, most deposits take less than one minute to be processed, whether you are using your bank account/e-wallet or a prepaid card.
